It looks like a prop from a horror movie (which it certainly has been) but this knife has a more pacific purpose than disemboweling sinful teenagers at abandoned summer camps. In fact, it closely resembles one of the oldest tools in human history, the sickle knife.
As the name suggests, the corn knife is made for pruning and harvesting corn by hand. 99.9999% of all corn is harvested by gigantic combines, but if you’ve got enough corn in your garden it might make a dedicated knife worthwhile. The blade is 8″ long and 6″ wide, including the hook.
And who knows? If you’re on the paranoid side of things and if your SHTF plan involves postindustrial corn or wheat cultivation (or zombie dismemberment) an overbuilt steel sickle might come in handy.
At less than $15, it won’t break the bank.
